Martin Scorsese and Michael Powell films at SAM

Here’s a treat coming up: Thelma Schoonmaker, Oscar-winning editor of numerous Martin Scorsese films and widow of the great British filmmaker Michael Powell, will be in town to present two great films. “Black Narcissus,” Powell’s exquisite 1947 drama about a group of nuns who open a convent in the Himalayas, will screen at 7:30 p.m. November 4; “Raging Bull,” the 1980 Scorsese boxing drama that won Schoonmaker her first Oscar, screens at 7:30 p.m. November 5. Both will be shown in 35mm — a rarity these days — and both will feature a Q&A with Schoonmaker (the latter screening will include an illustrated talk on the art of screen editing). Schoonmaker’s an occasional visitor to SAM, and talking with her is always a pleasure (here she is on one of my all-time favorite films, Powell’s “The Red Shoes”). Tickets for her upcoming visit are $18 for both films ($14 for SAM, SIFF, NWFF and TheFilmSchool members); a limited number of single tickets may be available at the door. For more information, see SAM’s website.
